Dear pbnb reader,

Big Oil is pressing once again to plunder the coastal plain of the
Arctic National Wildlife Refuge a fragile land of polar bears, musk
oxen, brown bears and caribou.

And this time, with so many bought and paid for friends in Congress,
Big Oil might succeed.

Your urgent donation will help protect polar bears in the Arctic
Refuge and other imperiled wildlife everywhere.

We’ve stopped attempted political raids on the Arctic Refuge in
past years – and we can stop this one as well. But we need your
help.

You only need to look at the industrial littered landscape that is
Alaska’s North Slope oil fields to get a horrifying glimpse of
what the future could be like if we don’t protect the coastal plain of
the Arctic Refuge. According to one report, more than 400 toxic spills
happen each year on the North Slope at Prudhoe Bay. Gravel pits,
roads, huge steel spiders’ webs of oil and gas pipelines, and
other aspects of industrial development pock the landscape from
horizon to horizon.

Don’t let this happen in the Arctic Refuge!

This week, the Senate and House will consider and likely approve a
federal budget plan that paves the way for oil and gas drilling in the
fragile coastal plain of the Arctic Refuge.

You and I owe it to future generations to protect this irreplaceable
jewel in the crown of our National Wildlife Refuge System. The
alternative is simply too awful to consider.

Thank you in advance for your generous support.
